Mineral de Pozos, Guanajuato

Mineral de Pozos was abandoned twice since the time of its foundation and was known as a ghost town. It is once again being inhabited by people from all over Mexico as well as the descendents of former miners who come to rescue its old houses, plazas, and streets. The surrounding area harbors centuries-old mines and nearby haciendas evoke the riches of now-exhausted silver and gold deposits. From their deep tunnels emanate the murmurs of the legends and tales of these semidesert lands.
